The gripping new spy action thriller featuring BOX 88 from the master of the 21st century spy novel

About the Author

Charles Cumming was born in Scotland in 1971. He was educated at Eton and graduated from the University of Edinburgh in 1994 with First Class Honours in English Literature. The Observer has described him as "the best of the new generation of British spy writers who are taking over where John le Carre and Len Deighton left off". In the summer of 1995, Charles was approached for recruitment by the Secret Intelligence Service (SIS). A year later he moved to Montreal where he began working on a novel based on his experiences with MI6. A Spy By Nature was published in the UK in 2001.

Reviews

'The storytelling is first-rate, with all the minutiae of spycraft, sense of place and memorable supporting characters you could wish for' Sunday Times

'Tense and topical, this has all you could want from an intelligent contemporary spy thriller' The Times, Books of the Year

'The first Kite novel was excellent, but this is even better - an elegant exposition of what being a spy in the field actually feels like and the fear it can instil in even the most hardened operator. Superbly constructed, it never hurries, but evokes the world of espionage in a way the late John le Carre would have much admired' Daily Mail

'This sequel to Cumming's stunning Box 88 is further proof that the author is one of the most adroit practitioners of the espionage art; the spycraft involving a covert intelligence group operating below the radar is nonpareil' i

'Some of the best writing around on the intricacies of spycraft and the high price agents pay for doing their job' Sun

'Intelligent, relevant and engrossing' NB Magazine

'Cumming adroitly portrays Kite's inner life...nail-biting' Financial Times
